Very enlightening.....the see-saw of past to present kept the reader interested....a real New World parable that Jesus would have used....."treat those as you would like to be treated..."....Being a Daughter of the Revolution from the Pennsylvania area myself and living in Western New York and attending college in Binghamton really brought the story home.

Visions of Teaoga is a middle grade novel that throws readers back to the 1700's when America was in an upheaval between Native Americans and Settlers along the New York State and Pennsylvania border.

Pre-teen Maddy takes a trip with her father to Pennsylvania. As they pass all of the historical sites, Maddy becomes interested in them. Especially a sign about Queen Esther. Luckily, Maddy's dad has found her a job helping at a children's summer camp. Mrs. T, the director knows a lot about the loc

Recommends it for: age 10 and up

I would like to thank Goodreads and especially Jim Remsen for the opportunity to read this book. I have always held a fondness for books on history and especially Indian history; but this book was truly wonderful even if you are not a lover of history. I would recomme ...more

This book was an excellent account of the Indian struggle told through the eyes of Queen Esther, and simultaneously a tweener on vacation.

I loved the rich portrait of Indian life and the heartbreaking challenges they faced. The tweener story was ok, although a little preachy at times. All in all, I think this is a great book to introduce that age group to who and what the Indians were before colonization. Their's is a rich and exciting history, and one that should be taught young to ensure they
